Operation Payback Fund

Cullercoats Collective have successfully recieved funding for Cullercoats Ambassadors and community events from the Operation Payback Fund

We have been waiting a long time to share this news with you all and finally that moment is here. In the week we officially launched Cullercoats Collective in March of this year we received news that we had been successful in a funding application to the Operation Payback fund provided by Police and Crime Commissioner, Kim McGuinness using money from the proceeds of crime.

Kim said, “I am really pleased to support the fantastic work of Cullercoats Collective in making Cullercoats a safe and enjoyable place to live. The funding I have provided through my Operation Payback Fund will increase the work already undertaken by the team and specifically aim to reduce ASB through the provision of diversionary activities and the recruitment of Beach ambassadors. I look forward to hearing how the project develops and the positive difference this will make to all who live or visit the area.”

We have already begun to put this money to good use through the recruitment of Cullercoats Ambassadors, who will provide a welcoming and positive presences as well as getting involved in community projects. You may have already seen them out on the streets on 8th May and they will be visible around Cullercoats in the coming weeks and months. We are also putting the finishing touches to a number of small events aimed at both Cullercoats residents and visitors over the summer and beyond.

If you would like to know more or you would like to find out about volunteer opportunities with us then please contact us via a direct message or through the contact forms on our website.

Wheelie Bins of litter cleared

How it went

On a very wet Saturday Cullercoats Collective directors, Cullercoats Ambassadors, The Tynemouth Volunteer Life brigade, Local Negibourhood Police Team, North Tynesdie Council and most importantly loads of community volunteers turned up to take part in this beach clean.  For two hours voluntters walked the beach and streets and cleared all kinds of rubbish.  The TVLB used there safety ropes to access the cliff tops andremoved large mounts of litter from this area.

Altogether 6 wheelie bins full of litter were removed and a number of old street signs that had been dumped were taken away to be recycled.

    Cullercoats Green Spaces

    Cullercoats Collective: Our Green Spaces are just as important as our Blue!

    We’ve had a lot of interest from our Community Engagement for Cullercoats Collective to look into our Green Spaces, as part of Cullercoats’ Eco and Environment aspect and our Pride of Place strategy arms.

    Cullercoats has a lot of great areas of interest: from the dunes and areas around the slopes leading onto Cullercoats Bay full of weeds and rubbish, to neglected planters outside of estates such as John street and Cullercoats Metro Station.

    Cullercoats Collective can help facilitate willing volunteers and make these ideas a reality.

    Updates

    We are planning a meeting via zoom with those who expressed interest into community gardening on Wednesday 5 May 2021 6pm. If you would like to attend this meeting, then please get in touch with us at environment[@]cullercoatscollective.co.uk and we can send you the meeting link.
